RULE 3.810.   COMMITMENT OF DEFENDANT; DUTY OF SHERIFF

On pronouncement of a sentence imposing a penalty other than a fine only or death, the court shall, unless the execution of the sentence is suspended or stayed, and, in such case, on termination of the suspension or stay, immediately commit the defendant to the custody of the sheriff. The commitment documents must include certified copies of the sentence, the judgment of conviction, and the indictment or information. If the sheriff is not the proper official to execute the sentence, the sheriff will transfer the prisoner, with certified copies of the commitment documents to the custody of the official whose duty it is to execute the sentence and shall take from that person a receipt for the defendant that will be returned to the court.
